Uruguayan president sees a big question mark in Venezuela without Chávez

"Politics in the Caribbean is determined by true peoples' leaders and Chávez is unquestionably one of them"

Uruguayan President José Mujica said on Wednesday that he cannot give "a sensible, categorical answer" about what may happen in Venezuela if Hugo Chávez does not recover from cancer. Mujica stated that he rather has "questions" regarding the future of the country in the event that the president steps down.

"I have questions as any other person would, because Chávez has exerted a tremendous influence on low-income Venezuelans and the Armed Forces, and finding a person able to do so is yet to come. Questions arise," the Uruguayan leader said according to radio network Montecarlo.

The president commented that "politics in the Caribbean is determined by true peoples' leaders and Chávez is unquestionably one of them." The problem, in his opinion, will be then finding someone able to follow Chávez's footsteps, Efe cited.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
